I still have about 15-20 pounds to go in order to get to my goal weight but I’m excited for my new journey!
I would also like to say that I update my twitter and instagram a lot through out my fitness/weight loss journey..
So I’m excited to say that I’m adding a few new things into my exercising routine!
So far, I’ve completely one full week of Insanity! Although I’ve only been doing it for a week, I can already feel the changes happening on the inside of my body. My goal for insanity is to complete one month, then to complete the second month. For my own personal goals, it’s better if I make really small goals first in order to achieve the bigger ones.
When I originally started insanity, it was tough and I hated it. Now I absolutely love it, because it’s do able. By working out consistently for 1/2 months, my body is able to handle Insanity. It definitely gets my heart rate up.
Here are a few different workouts from this week of Insanity!!
Starting next week, I’m going to also be adding in resistance training twice per week. Since I’ve been doing so much cardio, I think my body needs a shock. Personally, I notice more change in my body when I do resistance training as well. I will also be keeping up with some of my Pilates classes as well.
Yes, this is an evil word in my book. Sometimes I feel like I know exactly what I’m doing, sometimes I think I don’t. Nutrition is tricky when it comes to weightloss, but at the same time it is soo simple! However it’s the most important aspect to losing weight, I don’t care what anyone says. A year ago, I had seen major changes in my body. I found I was dairy, gluten, beef, and egg intolerant and I was also doing resistance training twice per week. I noticed a HUGE change in my body. Of course something happened and I fell off the train..again, but you know what that’s not going to happen this time. During that time period I was running around helping my boyfriend from a major injury, school and I just quit a really stressful job. So who knows exactly what it was. This time around I’m going to be focusing on moderation another evil word in my book. Really what does moderation mean anyways? It depends on the person, but I can’t see it like that.
With the insanity workout comes a meal plan. I’m going to try my hardest to keep to this meal plan since I will be working out a lot within the next couple months. Sometimes it’s hard to remember, but eating well should be a lifestyle. You cannot do it for 2 months then splurge all the time. Granted don’t get me wrong it’s nice to eat whatever you want sometimes, but you cannot do it all the time. You will get frustrated with not seeing results and quit.
So as far as nutrition goes, I’m going to be sticking to a 1400-1500 calorie diet depending on my workouts. I’m going to do my best…only treating myself once or twice a week with desserts.
I am also going to be tracking my foods on My Fitness Pal.
P.S. Those of you who say you can’t do it…trust me you have to be in the right mind set to want to do it. I understand exactly how you feel, but after being on a consistent schedule of working out I no longer feel this way. I am a graduate student and I work almost full time. I make sure everything is taken care of as far a the home is considered and prep all meals for me and Garrett. It is possible to do it, again you just have to be in the right mind set. Just keep that in mind as you continue through your weight loss and fitness journey.
